Your problem isn't in your <xsl:choose>, it's in the variable assignment.
You need an extra set of quotes around the value of the variable; otherwise,
the processor interprets it as "the value of the element named mm."

IOW, this will do what you want:

<xsl:variable name='unit' select="'mm'"/>

Hi all

This is another choose:when problem.  Just to test the validity of my
choose:when I written the following xslt segment.
I would expect the output of this segment be MileMay. But to my surprise its

<xsl:variable name='unit' select="mm"/>
	<xsl:when test="$unit='mm'">
	<xsl:when test="$unit='cm'">
		Count Mile

What have I done wrong here?
